Silva v Rockhold and Vitor v Weidman? Who knows at 185. Nobody really deserves that title shot.

Terrible undercard but a pretty fun main card. Some nice finishes.

GSP should be forced to fight Silva after the Diaz fight. It's time now.

On the Vitor front, he should stay at 185. I can't see Silva holding onto that belt for very much longer, at some point you'd think he'd want to campaign at 205 but...who knows.

Vitor looked great and Bisping can forget about getting a title shot anytime soon.

So let me get this straight, Vitor just beat a top contender at 185 and is now calling out the champion at 205 who he just lost to in his last fight? Yeah, that's not going to happen.

Just saw the video. Vitor called out Jones? Interesting.. I know what people say about MMA math but he did do better against Jones than Silva and he'd have a better claim at fighting Silva again...

If it wasn't for his nationality he would never have been in this fight. I am quite hard pressed to pick out a quality win on his resume. In fact, I can't even pick out one. Every single time he steps up to fight a top ten fighter he loses.

All in all I'm really glad he didn't win. Even just the one win against a top five MW in Vitor wouldn't have cut it for me, he has never shown the ability to deserve a title shot. As soon as the first round was over I knew he was going to lose. Showed no interest in working the clinch or using his wrestling, both of which would have given him a far greater chance to win. Instead he decided to strike with Vitor. That's a pretty bad idea for every 185'er besides Silva.

Maybe Vitor vs Rockhold next? Forget about top 5 or 10, has Rockhold even beat anyone in the top 20? I guess there's Jacare but that was almost two years ago.

No idea what's next for Anderson.

I'd do Rockhold vs. Phillippou. Costa is 33 so the UFC needs to move him pretty fast, and I think he's a top ten guy. The UFC also needs one of those two guys to be legit. Then Weidman vs. Vitor.

You mean this man isn't in the upper echelon of MMA fighters?

Wow did Rothwell look bad tonight. Credit to Gonzaga though I guess too. I figured Ben would be able to keep it standing and catch Gonzaga but he was just outclassed everywhere. Gotta be demoralizing to come into the fight in great shape and get dominated by a gatekeeper.

I really think it was more just saying something to get the fans cheering as he left the ring. Obviously if he calls out Silva that's not going to work, so Sonnen's the easy target.

Here is Sonnen's response.
Quote:
"Let me be real clear and speak direct with you Vitor: you've been telling the world that you'd like to meet Jesus. I'd be glad to arrange that travel. But, first, I'm going to get rid of Jon Jones. But, you are next. Let me be clear: Vitor, I accept. Don't make any mistake about that. You have called me out twice now, once after I signed a contract to fight Anderson Silva and once when you know I was busy with Jon Jones. I accept."

This is what I'd like to see. Weidman gets Anderson this summer, these two can fight on the same card, winner gets Silva in the fall.

Rockhold actually asked to fight Philippou, so that's definitely a possibility.

Jon Anik and Kenny Florian need to add a little more enthusiasm.

Missed the card but it's always great when Bisping loses.

Kennedy was definitely top 15.

Jacare was ranked #5 when Rockhold fought him.
